MAHEPA contributions towards greener aviation and sustainability showcased in INEA Horizon 2020 Collaborative aviation research

The latest aviation research projects funded by the EU’s Horizon 2020 framework research programme and managed by the European Union’s Innovation and Networks Executive Agency (INEA) also involve MAHEPA project.

By developing technologies that could make aviation more environmentally friendly, safer, and improve travellers’ experience, MAHEPA and similar projects are making an important contribution to the EU’s sustainability and transport policy goals. The European Union’s Innovation and Networks Executive Agency (INEA) has been addressing these challenges through a growing number of collaborative research projects in aviation supported by the H2020 programme. Over the past 5 years, INEA has undertaken a key-role in the wider landscape of aviation research and innovation funded by the EU. INEA’s implementation of H2020 makes an important contribution towards achieving the EU’s strategic goals in aviation, in its vision ‘Flightpath 2050’. The Agency supports R&I aviation projects that are not only improving already existing solutions but also, and more importantly, developing disruptive, game-changing technologies that could further accelerate the achievement of EU goals.

Research in this field is not only producing excellent results, it is also strengthening the European aviation research community and fostering cooperation. This cooperation reaches beyond EU borders; some projects include partners from further afield, helping to tackle challenges that call for global action. It is an exciting time for aviation. All indicators point towards significant and sustained growth in the sector, and the future of the European aviation industry looks particularly bright.
